Today – Top 5 biscuits, the definitive list.
Could Kate have picked a topic for which I am any better suited? Surely not. I may have trouble narrowing it down to 5 but I’ll give it a damn good try. I’ll probably have to eat some to ensure I really give you the best. It’s important to be sure after all.
1 Waitrose chocolate chip and hazelnut cookies
For me these win the award for Best Biscuit In The World Ever. They’ve got the perfect ratio of chocolate to biscuit to crunchy nutty bits. A quiet cup of tea and two of these (yes, two, one would be mean) is just heaven. In fact it’s hard not to rant on for ages about just how good they are. Just trust me, you must get some. Mmmmmm.
2 Rich teas
These are my dieting biscuits. You can’t expect people to give up biscuits completely, can you? After trying many of the plainer varieties I have determined these have the best bang for your calorie buck. They are a decent size and perfect for tea dunking without making you feel guilty and requiring some form of *shudder* exercise.
3 Crunch creams
As a general rule I don’t like the fake creamy icing type stuff you get in some biscuits but these are the exception. I’m not quite sure why I like them but I really do. I just have to try not to think about the odd industrial processes that probably have to be used to make them.
4 Dark chocolate digestives
Chocolate Digestives are obviously a classic but I think for the best effect you need to go the whole hog and have dark chocolate ones. Oh, and they have to be McVities. No cheap knock offs or supermarket own brands alternatives for this one.
5 Nice biscuits
I have a bit of a underhand motive for these. As well as being a tasty tea accompaniment these biscuits have the added benefit of repelling Hubs, who hates coconut, meaning they remain unmolested in the cupboard until I’m ready for them without me having to go to elaborate lengths to hide them.
While I recline on the sofa in a shower of biscuit crumbs you can check out everyone else’s favourites over at Kate takes 5. If you liked my top 5 biscuits don’t forget to check out:
